A burden I shoulder for solely your sake.
All to bring you peace of mind
I'd never have thought to leave myself behind.
I paint a smile upon this mask
As I close the lid on my funeral cask.
All these tears stream down inside
Never falter, never linger, take all in stride...
It's no easy matter to live a lie
Nor is it simple to watch the living die.
All this endured for what must be.
The turmoil concealed so none can see.
Harder than Stone
Harder than Iron
Harder than Steel
Lost within Cuendillar's dark embrace...
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even the Wheel may die...
